In their latest media escapade, Jeep pulled out all the stops to appeal to the pathos in each of us. The crusher commercial depicted a 1963 Gladiator being crushed at the junkyard, only to return in full transformation as a 2020 Jeep Gladiator. The new arrival proved stronger than the crusher could manage and kept its form steadfastly.
Here’s what two viewers had to say about it:
“I started to cry as the old one [was] crushed, but after I saw what happened […] oh let’s just say I’m impressed.”

Most viewers were taken aback in a positive light. However, some were not so keen on the idea of Jeep squashing a classic in the crusher commercial, regardless of whether or not it was driveable.
